A young Dunedin butcher will go to the United States in September to take on the world. Gardens New World Butcher Isaac Webster, of Dunedin, said he was honoured and proud to have been selected to represent New Zealand on the world stage, as part of the ANZCO Foods Young Butchers of New Zealand team. The four-person team will compete against 10 other countries at the 2022 World Champion Butcher Apprentice and Young Butcher Competition in Sacramento on September 2. In 2020 he won his first regional butchery competition, and the next year he won the ANZCO Foods Butcher Apprentice of the Year. His favourite cuts of meat were some ‘‘slightly more unusual’’ varieties, including hammer steaks, skirt steaks, flat-iron steaks and flank steaks.
